For art classes (all ages)
We explore the many parallels between composing a novel and composing a painting and how to use the visual arts to inspire the written word.
Contact me if your group would like to take my “Novel Art Tour” either in-person in Kansas City or virtually using slides. One hour.

The Art that Inspired the Stories
I highly recommend a trip to your local art museum on any day of the year if you seek inspiration or simply a reminder of the worlds that exist inside every one of us.
My current favorite artwork in the Nelson-Atkins Museum in Kansas City is Isamu Noguchi’s Six-Foot Energy Void. By magic he has sculpted a silky stone corral around infinity.
